, mitt romney is going to speak only for his corporate funders and the dirty energy empires that many of them run doing what he has to keep the pipelines of oil and campaign cash flowing. and that includes pandering to the far right who shout u.s.a. rather than confronting this frightening reality that we have entered a new normal in which everyday life is punctuated by frequent and intensifying natural climate disasters. and the megaphone of this fringe wing fox news, keeps reinforcing that message. >> where's the proof? these global warming claims have been debunked time and time again. >> you know what the problem is? there's more people living at the shore so there are more impacts. this is nothing to do with global warming. >> you can pretty much predict moments after a catastrophe global warming freaks will link it to global warming. >> next five to ten years we're probably going to see more storms around the eastern seaboard. has nothing to do with global warming. >> jennifer: that is deliberately dece
odd in the debates when energy policy was discussed, which was obviously linked deeply to climate because it is energy that is the main source, the way we use it, the fossil fuels, the way we use it is the main source of climate change even then neither candidate took the opportunity to explain these realities. so our political system has been broken for a while. the american public is realizing, of course, what the scientist versus long known. but now that we feel week by week month by month that the climate is changing and it's changing dangerously even before hurricane sandy, we were already in a period that was record warm for the united states, record drought in modern decades. that had not shaken the case. my answer is i hope so, but the political system has been pretty impervious to this up to now. >> jennifer: i think we should call for a new manhattan project, a national energy plan. i would be curious to know, if you had to say the top three things that should be in the national energy plan, briefly what would it include. >> i'll put in one we need to move to a low carbo
. it has a huge amount of moisture. it has a huge amount of energy that goes into the winds. how does this happen? every climate scientist knows perfectly well that when you have global warming you get more evaporation over the oceans lots more moisture in the air. when that happens you get heat in the oceans. heat transfers in storms into winds. the energy of the heat goes into the energy of the winds. the fact that we have this is a normal thing to happen when you have global warming. it is going to happen but you don't know exactly when and you don't know exactly where and you don't know exactly how big. but you do know these things are happening and they're going to happen. >> jennifer: so the purpose of this conversation is to convey to people, progressives who know that there is a causal link to be clear about it. to not be fudging about it. be clear. there is a systemic causation that links human activity and climate change to these huge weather events. >> right. systemic causation, we have a name for it.
this extreme storm is related to the warmer ocean temperatures. the tropical storms get their energy from the oceans and warmer oceans give it more energy. in decision the warmer atmosphere causes it to have more water vapor and that rains are heavier and floods are greater. also because sea level is rising. that means that these waves are on a higher base. we see all those are connected to global warming. yet no one is talking about that. >> cenk: so, do you think this storm in particular was made worse or intensified by the events you've been talking about, or the climate change you've been warning about? >> absolutely. the things that i mentioned the warmer ocean makes the storms stronger and makes them have more water vapor more rainfall, and heavier floods. >> cenk: do you think this will happen with greater frequency as we go forward? >> yes absolutely. well, we've shown that the temperature anomalies are shifting. there is a natural weather aggravationvariation is very large. the distribution of them is shifting toward warmer climates. so the extreme events like we saw in texas okl
energy came up mostly as an attack line for romney. but you remember at the convention romney's big line and big speech was obama wants to stop the seas from rising. that was his applause line. >> gavin: yes. >> as of now we're seeing a much more sober view across the board of the issue. the last point i'll make is if you don't want to listen to climate scientists on this matter, look at the numbers. another thing that came out the other day was that when the giant german insurance company said that climate-related loss has quinn tripled in the u.s. >> cenk: it's interesting that the insurance companies will have more at stake in losses. these are big corporate leaders that are hardly the folks on the front lines. they're not just holding hands and talking about the weather but they live in that world and they've been the ones most aggressive. i want to go back and not just talk about yesterday because i think you're right about sandy and i hope it points to a most optimistic future. we said that four years ago with all the incredible work that had been done, vice president gore and thee
of his policies. he would double fuel economy for cars by 2025. he would increase solar and wind energy and eliminate $4 billion in annual tax breaks for oil and gas companies. he's tried to do that, and of course the republicans have blocked it. that's the good. let's show you the bad. the copenhagen summit which so many people had great hopes for that pretty much got nothing done. they had a voluntary agreement--wow. he has basically abandoned cap and trade. no question the republicans fought him on that, but there was no second effort at all. he has approved the southern half of the keystone pipeline and i tell you the minute he's elected--not the minute, i like to be accurate--but when he's re-elected he'll approve the northern half as well. and of course he brags how he has done more drilling than george w. bush. which is true. now here is president obama talking about in the second presidential debate about how great he is at oil drilling. >> obama: we have increased oil production to the highest levels in 16 years. natural gas production is the highest it's been in decades. we ha
important tomorrow, hurricanes are the greatest way the planet earth has of moving heat energy from one hemisphere to the other. this is the big energy transfer that the earth does. when you add a lot of energy to the environment with fossil fuel burnage and all the other ways that we're throwing off kilter that energy balance it makes sense that there would be a corresponding rice in hurricanes. >> cenk: i love that explanation. it's not just random. the climate deniers, i don't know, it's random. it's not random. it's based on the events that mark explained. kara, it seems we have a combination of two or three storms here producing the super storm. is that also something that might be related to climate change? >> it's funny that you mention that and call it a super storm a.p. called it a franken storm and cnn banned the use of the term saying that that word frankenstorm which we know because it's multiple storms coming together, they said it kind of implied this was a man made disaster and wanted to be careful about attribution. that's a point we are not discussing is attribution is
and whether the hospitals need a substantial infusion of back up energy, evacuating women who are in labor should not happen no matter what the cataclysm is. that will bring a lot of attention. what is going on in new jersey. we spoke with the mayor of tomorrow's river before. he was talking about gas leakage. what do you know about that? that is something that continues to create dangerous situations. >> oheroh definitely. a lot of people are worried about the aftermath. our crews have been down there on the coastal areas of new jersey. you can hear the hissing from the natural gas eliot. it's very, very scary. obviously this morning it sparked several fires after the homes come down or get swept away, then you have natural gas lines that are open. they're worried about more explosions happening throughout the coming days. a lot of people have been saying they hear the hissing and smelling the gas smell. then you look at the homes that are still underwater in new jersey. there are thousands of people trapped in different areas in hoboken they're going door to door and it could be days bef
wants to go to 100% renewable energy in saudi arabia! and then he says okay, obviously we're going to sell the oil to the rest of the world. while we go to renewable energy. meanwhile, here in the u.s., while we should be leaning toward renewable energy, we've got two guys competing over who can drill for more oil. the world is turned upside down. in this way, saudi arabia playing the biggest joke on the world on us and dropping the elbow straight on top of our heads. saying ha ha! we got you hooked on our oil! meanwhile, we're going to renewable energy. unbelievable! we gotta turn around before it's too late. all right. everybody, thank you so much for watching us

intuitive? the southern part ships the oil from outside the country. i thought we were doing that for energy independence. >> that is not true. that's b.s. we've been fed and accept. that oil is getting down to the gulf of mexico so it can be available for export. that is the thing that's been so disingenuous saying this is for energy security and independence. it is not. it's for a foreign company transcanada who is building the pipeline and the oil companies invested in it, exxon shell, et cetera to get their oil to the open market. >> do you get discouraged seeing president obama engages in that same 19 sense when he knows he approved the thing that is going to send oil to other countries not our country. romney loves it, all the washington loves it. how in the world are we going to fight back when it seems they've got all the politicians. >> we've got to get rid of citizens united states. that ruling was just the most immoral unethical thing i mean it's shocking, frankly, you know that we're allowed to put this much money into the pockets of politicians. i mean, you look at how many poli
post" that dirty energy creates dirty weather. so can you say that there is a definite causal relationship between these extraordinary climate events like sandy and human activity like burning coal or oil or gasoline for energy? >> al: yes absolutely, jennifer. the scientific community in the last few years has become much more explicit in describing this causal link. they used to say that the most it was possible to say in linking them was the extra global warming pollution made such storms more likely. we were changing the odds. it was like loading the dice. but now they're saying something different. they're saying that it's gone so far that we have now become responsible for an extra 4% of moisture in the atmosphere above the oceans in just the last 30 years. so every single storm is affected. there's more moisture. the storms are getting stronger. the stronger storms are getting more frequent. and you know, this is the second time in two years that part of manhattan has been shut down. you know that didn't use
